Scarecrows, pumpkins, mums and much more make Festifall at the Huntsville Botanical Garden an autumn tradition you’ll absolutely fall for this season! Harvest fun for all ages is available throughout the two-month celebration, from nature hikes to campouts.

About Festifall at the Huntsville Botanical Garden

Some of the fun of Festifall at the Huntsville Botanical Garden actually kicked off on September 2nd with the opening of a family favorite—the Scarecrow Trail. The must-see fall scene includes “wacky, whimsical and wonderous” scarecrows created by local community members. 

The Scarecrow Trail will be open to the public until October 31st. A visit to the garden this month will also include plenty of colorful fall displays. The fall displays feature some of the season’s finest perennials, such as black-eyed Susans, sunflowers, asters and ornamental grasses. 

Of course, no fall display is complete without a variety of vibrant mums and other deciduous trees that add brilliant pops of color to the landscape this season. In October, it’s time for pumpkins! 

There will be big displays of locally-grown pumpkins in varying colors, shapes and sizes. So, be sure to plan multiple visits throughout September and October for quality time in the garden. 

Other programs and events

In addition to the scarecrows, flowers and pumpkins, there are plenty of other special programs and events to celebrate the season. From fall plant sales this month to a Family Campout mid-October to DIY autumn décor classes, check out all the extra programs and events to fill your calendar with fall festivities.
